A complex portrait of a lesbian affair written at a time when such subject matter was rarely penned, mid-century America is brought to life in lush, David Hopper-esque visuals. However, our leading lady is the scene-stealer: forced to spurn lover Therèse (Rooney Mara) and undergo therapy to claim joint custody, Cate Blanchette gives a knockout performance of understated strength, drained resignation and self-awareness. Carol drives home the psychological strength it takes these women to stay true to their desires in a thoroughly homophobic, sexist society.
